Norfolk Pure
Norfolk Pure is your municipal drinking water. Whether you prefer it from the tap or in a sports bottle, you are drinking top quality water.

Each year, the Department of Utilities distributes the Water Quality Report (also referred to as the Consumer Confidence Report). This report contains information on the department's compliance with EPA regulations for water quality, as well as the city's water sources (rivers, lakes, reservoirs, etc.). The information in the report is compiled from water quality tests performed by the Department throughout the year. These reports are distributed in May each year. View this year's report.
